SHORT TERM
A weakening low continues to push into the southern panhandle this afternoon bringing rain showers to parts of the panhandle. Most of the rain has been relegated to the southern portion or offshore. For the rest of the panhandle, cloud cover has returned allowing for some relief from the record warmth that was experienced yesterday. As we head into the overnight hours, rain showers are expected to continue across the southern panhandle while slowly working northward. The chances of rain showers for the northern panhandle remains low as showers will be moving from west to east trying to come over the Coast Mountains.
Any places that do see rain from the passing showers will see only light accumulations. With the cloud cover continuing over the area for the short term, temperatures will stay moderated during the daytime and overnight hours.

LONG TERM
Key Message: -Minor changes to the forecast with precipitation chances on the downtrend by Monday night, somewhat dry conditions return by mid- week.

Discussion: Minor changes to the long term forecast with down trends in PoP chances through mid week. The dynamics with the system on Monday afternoon still aren't impressive given a lack of upper or mid level support in addition to the lack of any significant amount of moisture. For now, went with low end slight chance of PoPs in the forecast on Monday afternoon as the weak front occludes over southern portions of the AOR with the main parent low sliding southeast towards CONUS.

One change to the forecast is Wednesday with an aloft low system passing south of the panhandle. Easterly flow aloft combined with modest vorticity advection and clearing skies may lead to some easterly showers developing around Skagway, Juneau, Petersburg, Wrangell, and Hyder. At this time, the chance is not great, represented in roughly 20 PoPs for the time frame. However, if these showers do generate, then high temperatures for these areas will likely be lower than expected.

Looking ahead, confidence continues grow that by Tuesday onwards dry conditions should prevail, with partly to mostly sunny skies and high temperatures increasing into the 50s & 60s.



AVIATION
VFR to MVFR conditions expected through the TAF period with increasing cloud cover and isolated rain chances. Winds should range from calm up to 15 kt, especially near any shower activity.
